Community members came together on Saturday night to celebrate the richness and vibrancy of the Sri Lankan culture.
This year, the Wagga Sri Lankan Community Association's annual cultural show was hosted at Henschke Primary School where various performances and displays wowed the crowd.
President Sampath Hathurusighe said it was a successful event with people from across the region attending.
"We had more than 100 people from Griffith, Sydney and Melbourne as well," he said.
"Our main focus was on our kids, who performed our cultural dances and songs. It's all about inspiring the next generation to learn about their culture."
Mr Hathurusighe said they started the organisation in 2013.
"Our association welcomes newcomers with Sri Lankan origin to Wagga and the Riverina, and helps them in various ways to settle down," he said.
"We try to make them feel at home here, and we contribute to the local economy while enjoying the benefits available in this society.
"Sri Lankans in Wagga and Griffith are multicultural communities who work in Road and Marine Services, Wagga City Council, Charles Sturt University, Wagga Base Hospital, D&M Electrical, just to name a few."
Mr Hathurusinghe said the community also organised blood donations, contributes to Fusions, and host religious events such as Vesak which are open to all.
He added that all the proceeds from the celebration would go towards helping children in Sri Lanka.
Mr Hathurusinghe said next year the association will put their minds towards assisting the elderly who might not have access to necessities.
